Amarillo, TX - Today area BMX riders are racing to find a cure.

The annual Race for Life event raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The American Bicycle Association hosted the benefit, accepting donations as a fundraiser.

Organizers say it has come a long way since it first started in 1980.

They add this is also a good opportunity to raise awareness about cancer.
